Keynote Session:  Encouragement for the Homeschooler:  Two of our homeschooling and THEA freedom founders, Claiborne and Lana Thornton, spoke at the June 17th, 2017 Homeschool Expo!  His bio read like George Orwell’s 1984 novel.  In 1984, families were already charged for truancy, child abuse, or neglect; would Claiborne join them?  Would he support and defend them?  We gained vision and were encouraged.
